"Another open source software .org website went online this
week. Ruby-lang.org is the
lead website for Ruby, a new, free, open-source, interpreted,
object-oriented scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming, from Japan. It has many features to
process text files and do system management tasks, as in Perl, and
is simple, straight-forward, and extensible.
If you want a language for easy object-oriented programming, or
you don't like PERL inelegance, or you like the concept of Lisp,
but dislike many parentheses, Ruby is a good option. Fast-growing
language: Japan now has more Ruby users than Python users.
Many useful programs and utilities already exist for Ruby.
